Ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens the geek community (well everyone) went crazy for a BB-8 droid released by Sphero. Now, ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi there are a few more options beyond just BB-8. First off, R2-D2 has arrived on the scene and can be operated right from an app in your phone. Artoo has the looks, sounds, and actions one would expect after seeing him on the big screen. He can also interact with other droids! This would include BB-8 and now also BB-9E, a droid of the First Order. Watch this video to see a demonstration of what Sphero is offering with these droids.
Are these the droids you are looking for? What do you think of them? While they are small, they definitely are a lot of fun. We have had hours of fun with BB-8 on the set of GEEKS CORNER and beyond. They make for a fantastic Christmas present and are also fun to watch the Star Wars movies with as they do interact as they watch the movies.
Let us know what you think of these droids in the comments below! If you have one (or get one for Christmas), we’d love to hear what you think of your droid!
